Boeing Defence Australia (BDA) started the first maintenance training program to be conducted under the five-year In-Service Support (ISS) contract for the RAAF’s six Boeing 737-based Wedgetail AEW&C aircraft on February 15.

The 147 day program started with 32 students from the RAAF’s 2SQN at Williamtown, and will comprise classroom and computer-based lessons, Operational Flight Trainer (OFT) simulator sessions, and flight line training.

“Realistic, integrated training is essential to mission readiness, and our Wedgetail 737 AEW&C training programs are designed to mirror the way RAAF personnel are expected to perform maintenance activities in the field,” Grant Drew, an AEW&C maintenance instructor for BDA, said in a statement.
